Annotation:
Legendary British interior designer Nicholas Haslam's memoir, REDEEMING FEATURES, is a whirlwind of parties and encounters with the glitterati of the last sixty years. Teeming with anecdotes, flip asides, and witty banter, the book features nearly 1,000 legendary figures including Marilyn Monroe just before her death, Mick Jagger exposing himself in a bar, and the Queen.

Praise

"A delight--gossipy, fluent and literate....[Haslam] channels his inner Proust, to marvelous effect." (starred review) 09/01/2009

"Young, handsome, nobly born, carelessly raised, and homosexual, Nicky went everywhere and knew everyone. His deliciously gossipy memoir details his life as a house guest, dinner partner, lover, and friend to the rich, beautiful, and talented...From this account it seems that Nicky had a life filled with fun." - Barbara Fisher 11/08/2009

"Nicholas Ponsonby Haslam...can name-drop for England. The index of his memoir is a roll call of the most iconic figures of the twentieth century, and our Nicky has met them all....This is a wonderfully entertaining memoir, gossipy, touching and tender..." - Sebastian Shakespeare 11/01/2009

"As this book's populous index makes clear, Haslam's circle of acquaintance has continued to grow, but REDEEMING FEATURES is thankfully a world away from the usual celebrity autobiography....One of Haslam's redeeming features is that he can really write." - Peter Parker 01/08/2010
